SDSU’s Entrepreneurial Management Center (EMC) held its Fifth Annual Closely-Held and Family Business Retreat from February 19 – 20 at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

The theme of this year’s event was “Challenges of the Next Generation” and attendees participated in workshops and sessions designed to provide guidance and instruction on topics such as succession planning, employee benefits, technology issues, and workforce motivation.

A.G. and John Spanos, executives in the San Diego Chargers organization were the keynote speakers during the dinner on February 19. They engaged the participants in a lively question and answer session that covered everything from the off-the-field behavior of the Chargers players to the challenges of seeing and working with family members on a daily basis.

At lunch on the 20th, Kurt Listug with Taylor Guitars spoke to the audience about how his organization was built. The event concluded that afternoon as members of the Wilson Creek Winery organization held a family panel discussion and wine tasting.
